Home remodeling costs vary significantly depending on whether you live in a tiny town in the western part of Virginia or in the Northern Virginia/DC Metro area. Although reviewing national renovation estimates will certainly give you a rough idea of your final costs, taking a look at costs in our area can help you create a realistic budget.
Kitchen renovations are among the most popular renovation projects for good reason. Older kitchens, even if they’re perfectly functional, make your house look outdated and may even reduce the price you’ll receive when you’re ready to sell your home one day.
Remodeling also allows you to replace outdated electrical and plumbing systems and appliances, which may improve safety and reduce your utility bill. Whether you’re dreaming of a sleek contemporary kitchen or a retro space, renovations add value to your home and increase your enjoyment of your kitchen.
You can expect a major, upscale kitchen renovation in the DC metro area to cost $133,299, according to Remodeling’s 2019 Cost vs. Value Report. That price involves updating a 200-square-foot kitchen with custom cabinets, a wall oven, commercial-grade cooktop with imported glass or ceramic tile backsplash, stone countertops, built-in microwave and refrigerator, water filtration system, designer faucets, tile or wood-look flooring, and task and general lighting.
Would you like to replace your current bathtub with a walk-in shower or add a luxurious soaking tub to your bathroom? You’re not alone. In fact, the National Association of Home Builders notes that 81 percent of home remodeling projects involve bathroom renovations.
You’ll pay about $66,000 for an upscale bathroom remodel and approximately $90,000 for a bathroom addition. Those figures include high-end features like neo-angle showers with glass enclosures, body-spray fixtures, free-standing soaker tub, custom cabinets, compartmentalized commode area, stone countertop with two sinks and ceramic tile on the floor.
Master Bedroom Suite Addition
Your bedroom should be a comfortable oasis that offers the perfect space to decompress from a long day at work. Unfortunately, if you live in an older home, your master bedroom may only be slightly bigger than your secondary bedrooms. Building a master bedroom suite addition will not increase your bedroom’s square footage, but also offer space for a comfortable sitting area, walk-in closet and luxurious bathroom.
Remodeling estimates that you’ll pay about $281,000 for a 32 x 20 foot addition. That figure includes a large sleeping area with gas fireplace, custom mantle and custom bookcases, plus a sitting area, walk-in closet, linen storage and hospitality center with refrigerator and bar sink. The bathroom features a walk-in shower, soaking tub, custom cabinets, separate toilet compartment, stone countertops with two sinks, large mirrors and in-floor heating.
